Adelaide Metro Bus Service 99A/C

Route 99A/C (anti-clockwise and clockwise respectively) is a useful free bus service for getting around the centre of Adelaide.

While the area covered can be done on foot the bus service is a very welcome alternative when its wet or Adelaide temperatures sore towards or past 40 degrees centigrade which happens regularly in summer.

The primary locations of particular interest to travellers along or close by the bus route are (commencing at Adelaide Railway Station and moving clockwise):

Adelaide Railway Station / Casino / South Australia Parliament House /Festival Centre

State Library / Migration Museum / South Australian Museum / Art Gallery of South Australia/ University of Adelaide

Adelaide Botanic Garden

Tandaanya Aboriginal Culture Gallery

Victoria Square

Central Market / Central Bus Station

Hindley Street

Hours of operation – Mon – Thur 8am – 6.30pm, Friday 8am to 9pm, Sat 8.40am – 5pm, Sun and Public Holidays 10am -5pm.

Service operates every 15mins Monday-Friday, every 30mins Saturday-Sunday and public holidays

Adelaide City Council – Free Connector Bus

This is a less regular (hourly) service – 98A/C – following a similar route to that of the 99A/C with additional stops in North Adelaide. The additional stops into North Adelaide include Adelaide Oval (for St Peters Cathedral) and the Adelaide Zoo. Both these are a short walk from the 99/AC route so I would recommend sticking with it.

Hours of operation are similar to the 99A/C.
